Dear Coach Ryan, Thank you for giving my son the most important gift, self confidence. After my son worked with you just one time I knew you had the magic touch. From the way you talk to him and his friends on the court, to the way you reach them on their level. Are all the ingredients to a fine coach. Your lessons will go on with them through their many years of playing basketball. Today, I was amazed to see him take everything that you have taught him and apply it to a game like situation. In return, he was able to score points for his team. But beyond the score it was his face, the ability to feel good and confident about himself. Not bad for a first grader:) Thank you again for sharing your gift.
